Saw Troy last night.

Thank goddess I heard a review on the bus yesterday. The woman said it was awful. Specifically, that Brad Pitt was awful.

That meant I had low expectations. So I liked it.
It was pretty good. Lots of very well tuned male bodies. Brad wasn't THAT horrible. I mean, I wouldn't say he was GOOD, but I think he chose a way to portray Achilles that made other people think he was bad. I think he played Achilles as a conflicted playboy hero, disaffected by everything around him. I think it came through alright.

Eric Bana was excellent, but then, his character afforded him that.

My boyfriend in another life, Orlando Bloom, fit the character of Paris quite well. A weak, kind of spoiled, pretty boy. But he was otherwise unremarkable. I mean, it's not like he was playing an ELF. Although he did get to shoot more arrows. Which is kinda sexy.
